Relative difference!: Women's hormones are the lowest during there menses. The loss of progesterone is what causes the menses (period).

I believe what is happening is the 12-14 days before your menses your progesterone hormone is present which causes tiredness, constipation, bloating (premenstrual symptoms). The day before your period it is low. You may just be noticing the difference when the progesterone goes away. ...Read more

Question about marks on my finger? I have these marks on my finger they were little bumps & they popped & turned into these red blister looking things. They don't itch they just hurt really bad. I have been to the doctor & the doctor does not know what th

Wow.: Wow. This one is a stumper! Your doctor is doing the right thing by doing a biopsy of the lesion to help with the diagnosis. Apparently, he/she thought it was a staph infection and treated you with Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) which can cover community acquired staph infection. When that didn't work, a biopsy was done. It shouldn't take 2 weeks to get results. Typically, it takes about 7 days. But the biopsy may only show non-specific inflammatory findings and you may still not have a definitive diagnosis. The last patient I saw with scattered painful nodules they had a disseminated bacterial infection with gonorrhea. Endocarditis should be considered in the differential and is diagnosed with serial blood cultures. This would be particularly important to do if you get more lesions or if you have systemic symptoms like chills or fever. You are a very interesting patient and I hope an answer to your problem is found promptly. ...Read more
